Baklava running around in his playpen. You can make one of these with a cardboard, tri-fold display (found at Walmart in the school section), like the ones used at art fairs and such. It was only $2.99 and I cut it into 4 pieces to make a square, then taped it together on the OUTSIDE edges. Anyway, he likes to dig in the corner so I put rocks and toys so he can't access it. As always, please watch your hamster at all times when you put them in the playpen!

Enjoy! :) :)


EDIT: Sorry, I had to remove the music because it was giving me a copyright notice, so now you get to hear awkward silence. :cheeky:

I left you a comment on FB, but again... he is sooo cute. Bach has the most gorgeous long haired coat, too. :)

I've already watched the video about three times. lol

Oh Baklava is adorable. So, so fluffy and inquisitive.
What a great idea for a pen, and it can be extended to bigger sizes if someone should want. Great idea!

WOW! Little Bach is a speedy little guy! Hehe, my Tucker is such a sloth compared to him - he just waddles slowly around during out time.

Good to see such improvement!

Awwee, I get so exited when I see that you have posted new videos or photos of Bachlava HH (sorry my spelling!)! He has really captured my heart!

He is a little, black, fuzzy ball of inspiration, and your care gives us all a great example.

I think I even got a glimpse of his "ouchie" foot, I think it was the injured one, and it looks great, he doesn't seem to be having any mobility issues in this video. He's like "Looook at my new play pen, it's awweeesome" **scurries away**

That is a really, nice big playpen too. (That is good because people aften ask about how to make a playpen).

rhapsody, I knoowww! He was such a slow waddler at first, especially with the foot, but now he's like, "Zoom Zoom!" :laughing: At least you can let Tucker out WITHOUT a playpen as you would actually be able to catch him. ;)

And hammmyfriend, thank you soo much for your sweet comment! Yeah, his foot is totally healed up now and glad he is an inspiration! :hug:
